After making the two DANADAX EPs on the Intelligent Machinery Productions netlabel (http://www.intelligentmachinery.com; EPs: "Trips Into Places Unknown" and "Consciousness in Shifts of Decay"), DANADAX became a one member project for about one year. Then, a two-member version of DANADAX was tried again, but not much ever came from it. Eventually, I, Curtis, was forced to realize DANADAX was just going to be consisted of myself. After planning so many different tracks for the first LP (I kept changing my ideas and my mind), I eventually got worn out of creating new ideas for the first album (whenever I got a new idea, I discarded the old idea). This left me with a bunch of various tracks with not one central, tied, connected theme. So, I decided to throw some of these tracks together and call them "DAXSCAPES I" which basically alludes to the many different and varying soundscapes (mostly consisting of noise and dark ambient) made by my DANADAX project. I have made enough of these tracks to fill up several albums, so expect a "DAXSCAPES II" in the future. I started my first idea for an LP of my DANADAX material way back in 2003, and it is 2007 now, so that's 4 years of material sitting on my hard drive. I think it's about time to share some of these tracks. I hope you enjoy. Remember, there will be a "DAXSCAPES II."

While Curtis claims there's no cohesive theme to this collection, it flows in a pleasing fashion. The tracks are short by ambient standards; most run 1-3 minutes, with the exception of the 17 minute trance-inducing closer "Drug Induced Higher Plateaus of the Mind". It's like a dim sum meal: enough to give a satisfying taste, but leaving you craving the next bite. Tasty morsels of noise followed by fullness and a bit of a buzz from the plum wine.
